Easy Tapestry Crochet
If you have made a garment before and are ready for a crochet sweater pattern with modern details, this pattern is perfect for you.
The tapestry crochet pattern is easy. Once you get going you don’t even have to reference the instructions or charts anymore.
And don’t worry if you do not know how to read charts. I wrote out every stitch and every color change for you in the instructions.
Some of my testers tried tapestry crochet for the first time when they made their sweater. And now that I think about it, not one of them asked me any questions about the tapestry crochet. They were able to pick the technique up easily from the pattern.
Unique Crochet Sweater Pattern
Speaking of testers, a lot of the testers commented that they were drawn to the pattern because they had never seen another pattern like it.
When I am designing crochet sweater patterns I strive to make different patterns with unusual patterns in textures and colors. I searched and searched to find out if there were any other crochet sweater patterns out there like this one. I was happy to find that there weren’t.
And take a close look at the details, especially the area where the shoulder connects to the sleeve. I spent hours figuring out how to get the pattern to run smoothly throughout the whole garment. It appears as if it doesn’t have any seams. Coor right! This is the kind of detail that makes your finished piece look luxurious and handmade instead of store bought.
I love a unique article of clothing. This fits that description perfectly.Jo H.

Have fun picking out the colors. Go for it and choose colors that truly express your unique creative side.
This was my first time reading a whole pattern (with no video) on a garment project and it was very clear and easy which kinda make me more confident in exploring more written patterns out there. So thank you, really.@illu.wailluwa
